Dear student,
r1=2r2=3r3
Then
r1/6=r2/3=r3/2 =k using ratios
Hence r1=6k,
r2=3k
r3=2k
Hence using the property of solution of trianle the required triangle is equilateral.
All the best.

Dear Sagar ji,

Will you please solve this question in full as I could not prove the required results with the hints given by you. Few days back I had called and requested you for the same.Thanks.

r1=6r by using a property 1/r1+1/r2+1/r3=1/rAs,r1=stanA/2, r=(s-a)tanA/2 ,So,s/(s-a)=6a=5s/6Similarly,b=2s/3,c=s/2,So,triangle is right angled at A
